Ben Elliot
Paris, FRA

Ben Elliot’s practice addresses contemporary subjects such as emerging technologies and lifestyles, influencer marketing and socio-economic trends. He also partners with forward-thinking companies to explore their concepts and values.

Elliot's initial projects showed a desire to envision the artist as a brand with a strong identity and storytelling. In 2016, he organised a party under his own name that attracted some 500 faces and creatives of the new Parisian generation. In 2017, he joined forces with the water brand Voda Voda to create a bottle, again under his own name. And he later collaborated with several digital brands and mobile applications – such as Perfect365, Meitu Inc. and Tinder – to realise other works as well. This approach was extended in 2018, when Elliot created an installation that resembled a concept store. It brought together more than 45 leading tech, sportswear, smart-food and virtual entertainment brands to make a comprehensive statement on the most advanced lifestyles and show how we are moving ever closer to the augmented human being. 

"I dream of exploring new worlds in the digital Realm."

UNRELEASED SELFIES is an ongoing series of selfies that were never published on Ben Elliot’s social networks. He originally took them for his Instagram but never published them, either because they were not good enough or because they were outtakes of other selfies.

The series UNRELEASED SELFIES offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Elliot's posts and projects. He is fascinated by the fact that, even though they were initially intended to be accessible anytime, anywhere online, these pictures can only be viewed properly in the context of an exhibition.
